    Hello to all my fellow S Gaugers. Its been a busy fall, and I have not had much time to post or to work on my layout. I spent a couple of weeks in Philadelphia at Six Sigma training (my new job is as a Six Sigma blackbelt), and marching band has kept us busy.

    A friend once told me that the secret to model railroad progress was to find 15-20 minutes each day and just do something. We rarely have large blocks of time, but a little progress each day eventually adds up. I have followed his advice. It has taken 6 months, but my bedroom layout is now fully operational. I completed the last of the wiring work on Saturday. I connected my Digitrax system to the layout and successfully ran my one locomotive and handful of cars over all sections of the layout. Now that the trains are running, I can turn my attention to scenery. I hope to install the fascias over the holidays and to start painting some clouds and horizons on my backdrops. I am new to backdrop painting, so that should be an interesting experience. We will be gone most of the holidays on a cruise with our kids, so any progress will likely be the last few days around New Years weekend.

    I hope all my fellow S Gaugers have a wonderful holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.

    Happy holiday wishes to you too Don. That is great that you have trains running now. I've been busy with the 1:1 railroad, and trying to keep the boys on task with their homework. Enjoy your cruise with your family and we're looking forward to more progress reports as you can make them.

    I took a few digital photos over the weekend. If I can figure out how to post them, I'll do it over the holidays.

    If you don't already have a site on the web, you can get a RailImages account. If any questions, there is plenty of help available here. So we can see your work!
